The nominees for the 2010 Grammy Awards were just released. The cut-off for eligibility is August 31st so albums that came out after that, like Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 will have to wait until next year to be considered.

Following  is a short list of potential award winners from  several categories. The full list can be seen at www.Grammy.com.
